In this economy...

A friend of mine commented on FaceBook that the phrase "in this economy..." should be banned from advertising, as it's more manipulative than true. But, as I said as Mark Antony in my sixth grade production of Julius Caesar, "so let it be with Caesar."

One wants to make an unforgettable impression in the job search, right? And, in case of emergency, have a secondary food supply? I know I do, which is why the Meat Cards concept - rectangles of beef jerky laser-etched with one's business information - appeals to me. Hopefully, they'll even use kosher jerky.

My sister says that, for this idea, I am "absurd," which just means that I am full of misunderstood brilliance, like Nikola Tesla.

I'm gonna have to go with your sister on this one. Although I am sure my husband would want his own stack of Meat Cards. He'd probably devour them before he had a chance to hand them out, though.

It turns out that, for liability reasons, the company that makes them says they're not to be eaten - they can't guarantee freshness.
